Unread Content unavailable?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I haven't been able to access the "unread content"-tab here on the forum for a number of days now. It just loads forever and then says service unavailable. It's a pity, because I usually go through unread content every day. Other parts of the forum are not a problem. Is it just me?

 

"Service Unavailable

The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to maintenance downtime or capacity problems. Please try again later."

I did experience it in general yesterday, but not specifically with that tab. Perhaps it was just a coincidence (or maybe it's indeed due to capacity problems in one way or another and that function takes longer).

 @implodedok could you please see if there's something on the server side which is causing this?

I have this issue for a few days too. The "Unread Content" loads a significant time (likely depending on unread items count, permissions etc.) and there seems to be a one-minute timeout (so if it doesn't manage to load in that time, it returns http 503).
Apparently for most people it works fine, for my account it almost never manages to load. I created a new test account and it always works fine there (even though it lists all recent content as 'unread').
I've asked Jan about it yesterday, he said:

It loads for me, although slowly.
Best would be I think if you posted on the Invision Power support forums about it

I didn't manage to post on IPB forums yet.

I had loading times of 40-50 seconds for a few days and now I'm getting http 503 too. I'd guess there's a performance issue with the forum database because files load quickly and other parts of the forum are also relatively slow (like around 10 seconds loading time).

So any news on this? I still haven't been able to read unread content (about 2 weeks now), and (some) other parts of the forum are indeed slower than they used to be...

It's weird that it never works for you, it's been slow, but working for me apart from one time. Not sure how much of my experience is down to my computer being old and slow as well, so hard to tell for sure how slow it really is. I'm not sure how to investigate it further, if @implodedok doesn't know either then I don't know where to go from here :unsure:

Strange... My computer is new though, and my connection allows me to watch youtube video's in HD (yes, that's how I check my internet speed :blush:), so I'm pretty sure it's not from my end, that and other people having the same issue.

I contacted @implodedok and he said we should contact IPB (I believe someone did so) to see if it's a problem on their side on ours and if it's the later he'll have a look when he gets some time he is busy at the time.

Thanks Stan.

The performance problem is definitely not only related to the forums, because the IRC bot also sometimes reports things half an hour to an hour after they happened on Phabricator.

Also just clicking on things on the forums takes longer than it used to.

The speed issues, as well as the unread content not loading issue, should all be resolved now. :-)

What happened? :) Just curious. I never had issues myself, besides seeing massive amounts of spam on the forum in the past week.

Massive spam...that is why AoE forums bring back "flag spam/abuse" button.

We still have our "Report post" link though clicking it during the slow down was a bit painful as to the cause of the slow down it's self my guess is that the data base that manages the whole forum needed a new index generated.

Enjoy the Choice :)
